Beinecke Scholars receive a total of $34,000 in support of full-time study in the arts, humanities and social sciences at an accredited graduate school. Students in the social sciences who plan to pursue graduate study in neuroscience should not apply for a Beinecke Scholarship. Funds may supplement support provided by the graduate school.
Applicants must have demonstrated academic ability, be a college junior pursuing a bachelor's degree during the 2013-14 academic year and a U.S. citizen, and have a documented history of receiving need-based institutional, state, or federal grants-in-aid during college.
Reed's Fellowships and Awards Committee will review applications and nominate one person based on the strength of the essay, two letters of support, and financial need. The Beinecke Scholarship Program selects as scholars 20 nominees who best match its goal: to encourage and enable students who have demonstrated superior levels of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement, and personal promise to pursue opportunities available to them and to be courageous in the selection of a graduate course of study.
The committee, working with the registrar and director of financial aid, sends a notice to those students who meet the eligibility requirements. Selected students should pick up an internal application from Jo Cannon
in Eliot 429.
